Subject: Complying with PCI DSS 1.1

PCI DSS Requirement 1.1 states:

Install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect cardholder

You may ask, "I have firewalls on my perimeter, so I'm done, right?"

Not Quite!

Passing PCI requirement 1 requires you to review the configuration and
ensure that the firewall properly maintains the security of the
protected network zones.

But performing a thorough review can cost security engineers days and
weeks of manual effort.

Save yourself the headache by generating an automated PCI compliance
report  from Athena FirePAC.  Athena FirePAC allows you to:
-  Model the firewall's complete behavior
-  Eliminate false positives when determining compliance
-  Identify the specific rules that cause PCI control items to fail
-  Achieve standardized and consistent reports with every scan

Get your first PCI scan on any Cisco, Checkpoint of Juniper Netscreen
firewall configuration for FREE.
